Product Description

Product Description

John Grisham's explosive novel is brought to the screen by Joel Schumacher. Carl Lee (Samuel L. Jackson) seeks violent revenge after his 10-year-old daughter is brutally assaulted. Lawyer Jake Brigance (Matthew McConaughey) has to save him from Death Row, against mounting pressure from both the Ku Klux Klan and the Civil Rights Movement. Sandra Bullock stars as Brigance's student lawyer aide, while Kevin Spacey appears as the ruthless prosecutor, Rufus Buckley.

From Amazon.co.uk

You wouldn't know it by watching the Batman movies they collaborated on, but this smart adaptation of John Grisham's novel proves that director Joel Schumacher and screenwriter Akiva Goldsman have some talent when the right project comes along. Schumacher had previously directed Grisham's The Client, and brought equal craft and intelligence to this story about a young Southern attorney (Matthew McConaughey, in his breakthrough role) who defends a black father (Samuel L Jackson) after he kills two men who raped his young daughter. Sandra Bullock plays the passionate law student who serves as McConaughey's legal aide and voice of conscience in the racially charged drama. Added to the star power of the lead roles is a fine supporting cast, including Kevin Spacey, Ashley Judd and Oliver Platt. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com --This text refers to the DVD edition.

I first saw this film not knowing who Grisham was, having never read any of his novels or seen any of their adaptations. I wasn't expecting much and I got far more than I could have ever hoped for. From the very first scenes, the film hits you between the eyes with shocking scenes that are horrifying yet at the same time emotional. It tackles a number of sensitive issues at the same time - racism, rape, murder, vigilatism, sexual equality to name a few - something which few films do and even fewer manage to do successfully. The cast are excellent, the characters believable and well portrayed and the storyline, although extreme, is convincing and could well be a true story. Although the outcome is slightly predictable, it is still a fascinating and gripping story that will suck you in, churn you up and spit you out again and will stay with you for a long time to come.

This film had all the hallmarks for success, John Grisham, the writer of the book, that this film stems from is indeed a lawyer. He was born in the neighbouring Arkansas and went to Mississippi University. With that pedigree and this this all-star cast it was never going to fail. This is the classical `Deep South' story though it is post Jim Crow era.
One of the great `black' injustices of our time was carried out in Mississippi - the death of 14 year old Emmett Till, by two `whites' who were acquitted , though clearly guilty.
Here Matthew Mc Courtney (Jake Brigance) takes on the role of an Atticus Finch of 'To Kill a Mockingbird.'
He's young, has principles and just like Atticus the world is against him for standing up for what he believes is right, even if legally and locally, he's on very shakey ground?
He's clearly made of stern stuff. He's broke, his family and friends are intimidated, his house is burnt down , they even try to assassinate him, but possibly his greatest virtue is that he refuses through all of this to have an affair with his new assistant Ellen Roark ( Sandra Bullock). I'll tell you what, his wife's got a good un there for sure!
Samuel L Jackson is excellent as Carl Lee and it's his savvy that Jake latches onto to fight the good fight. Keven Spacey's role is perfect for him as the overly confident and totally smug Rufus Buckley. Bullock fits in perfectly and a word also for Patrick McGoohan (Omar Noose) who was just outstanding as the nasty, racist judge who gave the young Jake absolutely no encouragement at all.
If you like films about the `Deep South' then this has to be on your watch list.
I'm giving this 5 stars, as even though I found it a bit flowery in places, it does have everything that a top film should have and holds your attention all the way over the full two and a half hours. I have the Bluray version which is just wonderful as adds greatly to the overall pleasure of this top film.

This film has everything you could hope for from a film that is based on the writer, John Grisham. As usual, Grisham has written a book which is very easily transferred from page to film.
The acting in A time to Kill is consistently good with a lot of big names in the cast list. The most notable of performances is that of Samuel L. Jackson who skill as an actor has proved unquestionnable.
This being a law film does not mean that the film is cheifly concerned with legalities. It is a film charged with raw emotion and sorrow. However this film has very moving and uplifting sequences of which to boast.
This film makes compelling viewing and causes the viewer to question their own racial prejudices and feel ashamed of what was allowed to occur until really quite recently.
The competent direction of Joel Schumacher keeps this intellectually stimulating story appealing to the eye.
Well worth watching, I urge you to do so.

This is an excellent film and proved so by managing to keep 30 14-15 year olds quiet for the entire film - and that's some achievement! We all agreed that the film was excellent, showing exactly what was/is wrong with the world.
Fantastic acting all the way through, particularly the scenes in court and the last part in court is perhaps one of my favourite parts.

This movie based on the book with the same title, is about a trial about a man who shot some people because his daughter was raped, and the KKK is coming in, as the trial goes on. This is a very powerful drama, and a decent cast as well, Samuel L. Jackson, Sandra Bullock, Donald Sutherland, Kevin Spacey, Kiefer Sutherland, Matthew McConaughey, and Ashley Judd. Very great and dramatic acting, directed by Joel Schumacher, the man who brought Falling Down,Batman & Robin,Batman Forever,Phone Booth,The Lost Boys St. Elmo's Fire and many others. The scenes at trial were very realistic and convincing and the beginning of the film was perhaps the most disturbing in this movie, and the scene with the KKK coming in was also disturbing. A must see for those who have read the book, I believe they have captured the feel of it very accurately. Watch it.

Good film, very well photographed and great cast - I would have given it five stars but we found that Matthew McConaughey and Sandra Bullock, although very good actors, did mumble their words quite a lot. It is set in the Deep South but still had trouble with their speech - but well worth watching.
